December 9, 2015 — Arterys Inc. launched the Arterys System, an intelligence platform designed to enhance medical imaging, at the 101st Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 29-Dec. 3 in Chicago.

Its first application is in the cardiovascular space, enabling clinical visualization and accurate quantification of blood flow inside the human body. The seven-dimensional data (three in space, one in time, three in velocity direction) input quickly and easily to improve diagnoses in cardiac medicine.

The Arterys system was launched as part of GE Healthcare's ViosWorks, a new comprehensive cardiac solution that reduces magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) assessment to a fraction of the time of conventional cardiac scans. ViosWorks will provide 3-D cardiac anatomy, function and flow in one free-breathing, 10-minute scan with cloud-based, real-time processing of images at resolutions previously unattainable, according to the company.

In November 2015, Arterys and GE Healthcare entered into a partnership to include the Arterys System in new GE Healthcare MRI machines. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

In addition to the launch of the Arterys System, the company completed a $7 million Series A financing led by Emergent Medical Partners, including participation from Norwich Ventures, AME Cloud Ventures, Morado Ventures and Asset Management Ventures.
